1. Jackery Boom 10W - Best Rugged Speaker 2017

You may not be familiar with the Jackery line of products, but they specialize in durable and rugged speakers and even raised $100,000 on kickstarter for a solar powered battery generator. The company knows what they are doing and have a wide range of products for every need. We loved the fact that the 10W model was under $30 at the time of this post (4/20/17). It is 70% off the normal list price which is pretty sweet.

We love the sleek look of the speaker and it boasts Bluetooth 4.1 so it can connect to all of your mobile devices and is rated at IP65 which means it is water resistant (not waterproof) and perfect for camping, biking, hiking, or next to the pool.

It has two 5W stereo drivers which means it is loud enough for a lot of outdoor activities and boasts a 2000 mAh battery which will give you 8 hours of continuous playback. One of the fun features to the Jackery is the ability to insert a microphone (or use your bluetooth cell phone) and turn it into an impromptu megaphone.

As far as the specs, it comes in at around 8 inches x 4.6 inches which is small enough to fit into a backpack or phanny pack (who has those?) and weighs less than 20 ounces so it won't be a burden.

Many of the other satisfied customers attach it to their ATVs and outdoor equipment so unless you are running it over with a monster truck it should do everything you need. That's what makes it the best rugged bluetooth speaker!

Here are the major Pros and Cons that stood out so you can see if it is right for you.

  • Great price point and excellent reviews
  • Long battery life
  • 18 month warranty
  • Menus are a little confusing
  • Not completely waterproof

3. Photive M90 20W - Best 20W Rugged Bluetooth Speaker 2017

If you are looking to step it up a bit you can go for a little more power (and size) with Photive's 20W model The M90. Like the rest of the items on this list, it is equipped with bluetooth to connect to all of your wireless media and is IPX5 certified which means you can expose it to water jets, but not submerge it.

Because this model has two 10W speakers it can pump out tremendous sound with it's speakers as well as a passive bass radiator and a separate subwoofer. It has energetic bass tones and creates a robust and rich sound.

The case is coated in rubber which makes it non-slip (also has a non-slip handle) and easy to tote around and has built-in aluminum supports to keep it rugged.

The battery life is the best on the list so far (even though this is the most power hungry speaker). If you are blasting it full power expect it to last for around 10 hours, but if you are using it less aggressively, you can probably get 15+ hours on a single charge.

Best and loudest sound due to the 20W sound system.

  • Longest battery life
  • 12 month warrant
  • More expensive
  • Can't use the radio

Rugged Bluetooth Speakers Buying Guide

IP Rating

The IP rating for any speaker is going to tell your exactly how much pain it can take before it is going to break. The IP standard is an industry defined test procedure that puts the speaker under the elements (dust, water, submersion, etc)​.You always want to know what you plan on doing to the speaker so you can choose one that will do the job correctly.​ For complete submersion you are going to need at least an IP rating of IP67, but for most rugged activities an IP 66 or 65 is going to be fine. But, do your research and make sure it is the right one for you.

Battery Life

If you are going out on a long camping trip you need to think about external batteries. It is very rare that you are going to find a single speaker with 20+ hours of battery life. But, for most standard day trips 6-8 hours is going to be plenty as long as you remember to plug it in when you get back to your house.​

Sound Quality

Check the review before you buy. Many of the previous buyers will have tried out all of the setting and blasted a myriad of different types of music. If you see a lot of reports where the speaker is breaking down ​on high volume or gets distorted bass with different music you can try something else. Keep in mind that you are paying < $100 for a speaker that is designed to be thrown around. You aren't going to get Bose quality unless you pay for it.

Warranty

Check the fine print of the warranty before purchasing. Many of the warranties are for parts and labor which is what you want. But, most won't cover improper use of the equipment. If you go scuba diving with your speaker that is only rated for rain, you are going to lose your money.

Final Thoughts

Like I said before, when buying any speaker system, especially for use outdoors and on the go, it’s important to make sure to find that sweet spot between durability, portability, convenience and ruggedness. Each of these speakers have their own special qualities suited for different users.From aesthetics to battery life, to the ability to run it over with your car if that’s what you want, picking the right speaker system to make sure your tunes really do last is down to what ruggedness means to you.

1. Aomais Sport II - Best Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker 2017

With an IPX7 rating, this Bluetooth speaker’s waterproof quality is undeniable. It offers protection against harsh water spraying and even low levels of submersion, allowing you to take it near water without worrying what will happen if it falls in.

This waterproof wireless speaker features a Bluetooth range of thirty-three feet, and with dimensions of 8.5 x 1.6 x 2.2 inches and weighing in at 1.4 pounds, it is still portable while also offering durability, including a silicone panel on top for button protection.

What makes this water proof speaker exceptionally portable is its ability to mount onto your bike. Although the mounting tripod is not included in the purchase of the speaker, it’s a great feature if you’re an adventurous, music-loving mountain biker.

This durable Bluetooth waterproof speaker is a great option for any outdoors person who would like to take their music on-the-go.

2. Photive Hydra - Most Durable Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker of 2017

Unlike the other products on this list, the Photive HYDRA Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth speaker provides an IP rating that lists its protection level against not only liquids but also solids. Coming in at IP66, it is fully protected against any dust as well as being able to withstand harsh water pressure from any angle.

Its Bluetooth range reaches up to thirty-three feet, and it will play for up to eight hours on a single charge. This speaker is well suited for the listener who is seeking an outdoor music player perfect for setting out even in sandy or wet conditions. While there is no handle and it is somewhat on the larger side, weighing 1.4 pounds and measuring 8.5 x 4.4 x 3.2 inches, its durability is an undeniable benefit.

The outside is padded with rubber which not only protects it from water, but doubles as a shock absorber if you drop it. It also helps you grip it if you are on the move.​

We also didn't notice any distortion or fall off of the bass as we increased the volume. In fact, it seemed to get better as the sound increased.​

Whether you plan to take your music poolside, beachside, or to any other similar outdoor setting, this could be a great choice for you.

  • One user raves that it actually survived a tornado!
  • Waterproof
  • 12 month warranty
  • Blue light can be annoying in the dark
  • Have to pay for shipping if you get a dud

Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker Buyer's Guide

When purchasing waterproof Bluetooth speakers, there are several important considerations. First, think about where you will be using your speaker. Will it need to survive harsh conditions, such as dirt and potential submersion in water? If so, look for an option with a high IP rating, as this will tell you exactly how much the speaker can endure. Many offer only the second digit of the IP rating, which is okay in most instances; after all, this is the digit that indicates the Bluetooth speaker’s waterproof quality. But if you think you might want to take your speaker to a dirty or sandy environment, then it might be worth searching for one with an IP rating that provides both digits.

The weight and dimensions are also significant aspects, as they affect the portability of your speaker. If you would like to carry it with you, then you’re going to want a speaker that is small enough, while not sacrificing the durability so essential for outdoor excursions. You might also want to consider the type and size of handle. Is it easy to grip and carry?

​Battery life is of some concern as well, depending, again, on your intended usage of the device. If you plan an all-day get-together that may last well into the evening, you don’t want to sacrifice any aspects of your outdoor fun, including music. So if a speaker has a battery life that is close to your expected maximum usage for any given time, then you might want to look for something with a little longer battery life.

Different Types Of Speakers​

Although at first glance it may seem that all speakers are, more or less, the same, this is not the case. Just by reading product descriptions, some major differences are apparent in areas such as the functionality, durability, and cost efficiency. Some are designed for indoor home theater use, while other are built to withstand even the harshest climates. Other differences include battery life,presence of auxiliary inputs, Bluetooth range, and portability.

IP Ratings​

​Rather than simply relying on the “waterproof” or “water-resistant” claims of the product label, it’s a good idea to look for Ingress Progression (IP) ratings. After the “IP,” you will see two digits. The first indicates how well the speaker will be protected against solids, such as dust and sand. Many waterproof speakers do not include this rating and instead have an “X” in place of it.

The second digit is the most significant when looking to purchase waterproof Bluetooth speakers, as it represents the product’s durability against liquids. For both the first and second digits, the scale is from 1-8, with 1 being the poorest rating and 8 being the very best.

When considering the second digit, a rating of 4 means that the speaker can withstand water splashed against it. 5 and 6 both indicate that the device can survive the force of a water jet, the difference being the size of the jet itself. Products with ratings of 7 and 8 can both be submerged in water; whereas a 7 can only go underwater 1 millimeter,an 8 can go beyond that.

Weight & Dimensions​

The weight and dimensions of waterproof portable speakers can vary greatly. The products on our list, for example, range from a mere 0.3 ounces up to 2.7 pounds, while the dimensions can be as small as 3.2 x 3.2 x 1.8 inches or as large as 9.5 x 2 x 3.8 inches.

​Of course, any of these are still relatively lightweight, but it does make a difference depending on where you plan to use your waterproof Bluetooth speakers.

If it is strictly for use in your backyard, then a larger device may not pose any issues for you. However, if you’d like the most portability options from your waterproof speaker, such as the ability to conveniently take it to the beach, then you might opt for a more compact speaker so you can easily stow it in a tote.

1. VAVA Voom - Loudest Portable Bluetooth Speaker 2017

The VAVA Voom Premium is somewhat akin to the onomatopoeic name it has been given, in that when it revs up you are not going to be able to hear anything else. It is definitely one of the loudest bluetooth speakers we found to date. The sounds system totals 20w and is comprised of one large 10w subwoofer speaker and two 5w drivers. This makes sure that you’re never going to be asking ‘eh? What was that?”. Unfortunately, all this power doesn’t necessarily add up, and the Vava’s official website only places the speakers sound output at 78 dB, although it should be noted that some users have claimed higher levels.

The speakers might not be the loudest on the market, but they make up for it by managing to retain crisp and fluid quality even in the upper bands of volume. Your music will melt in your ears like a smooth bar of chocolate when you use these sound producers.

3. Jawbone JAMBOX - Best Discontinued Option

Designed to be used during social occasions as an eponymous ‘jambox’, Jawbone has made a device capable of pumping out an impressive 110 dB. The design is minimalist and sleek, meaning that you might even be able to consider this a stylized stallion - I will admit that the white option does exude a certain amount of class and sophistication.

These speakers come even closer to the top of this list as their maximum volume level really is impressive. They do, however, lack some of the features and styles which can be seen with the other contenders in this list.


Best Waterproof Bluetooth Shower Speakers of 2017


Who doesn’t love to sing in the shower? Even if you don’t like to sing, chances are you like to listen to music in the shower, by the pool, on a boat, or in the kitchen. If that’s the case, you need to get a speaker that can stand up to the elements. You don’t want to buy an expensive speaker only to ruin it with the steam from the shower.

There are lots of speakers on the market designed for situations just like these. These brilliant electronics are varying degrees of water resistant to withstand splash and steam. They also run on Bluetooth, so there are no wires or connections to shield from the spray. This also keeps your phone or streaming device completely away from all danger.

A waterproof Bluetooth shower speaker is compact and portable. They usually can attach to a surface so you don’t have to worry about it falling off of your boat. In spite of their small size, many have impressive sound quality. Best of all, these speakers are inexpensive today. Here's everything you need to know before purchasing one.

1. iFox iF012 - Best Bluetooth Shower Speaker 2017

If you have pets or children, this might be the choice for you. The iFox speaker is safe under up to three feet of water, so it is truly waterproof. You don’t have to worry about the dogs or the kids knocking it into the sink or the bathtub. However, with a powerful suction cup, the chances of that happening are slim. The iFox speaker has a great design that has improved with feedback fro customers. It is simple but functional. Customers complained in the past that the buttons were difficult to read. On this model, iFox made the icons on the buttons white because that’s the kind of company iFox is.

The iFox is Bluetooth capable up to about 30 feet. It has a microphone to give you hands-free capabilities. The sound quality is impressive, while the battery power is exceptional. It lasts up to ten hours and recharges in less than three hours. The speaker comes with a full money-back guarantee for a year after purchase. You can feel confident that you won’t waste your money on this one.

At 3W this speaker doesn’t offer the same volume as the Cambridge SoundWorks, but it can still fill a room.

  • Great value for the money
  • Attachment via suction cups
  • Oontz Angle 3 has bigger sound
  • Learning curve with buttons

2. Oontz Angle 3 - Great Bluetooth Speaker For Sound 2017

The Oontz Angle 3 fills the sound quality hole left by most compact speakers. Cambridge SoundWorks put extra care into making sure your music won’t be lacking in bass. The Oontz Angle 3 gets twice as loud as the loudest speaker on this list with 10W of power output. Unparalleled bass will turn your shower into a dance club. A microphone offers hands-free services. It is water resistant, or splashproof, for shower use but is not waterproof. It is also dustproof, but not shockproof, so be careful! It is compatible with Amazon’s Echo Dot, so you can control most of your life from the bathtub with the Oontz Angle 3.

You pay for the improved sound quality with a slightly larger size, but it’s still portable. It has a long, thin shape designed to fit in a cup holder. Another benefit of the size is the extended battery life. It can last up to seven hours of continual use. The battery is rechargeable. Even though the size is a bit larger, it is still lightweight at a slight nine ounces.The only thing lacking in this design is a suction cup or hanger. The Oontz Angle offers neither. Thus, if in the shower, you may want to set it on a soap dish out of the way of the shower spray.

If you are still undecided, we also have a dedicated page for the Oontz Angle 3 Review.

  • Biggest sound of the shower options
  • Still only 9oz
  • Heavier
  • No dedicated mount point

3. VicTsing Shower Speaker - Lowest price bluetooth shower speaker 2017

This is the best-selling shower Bluetooth speaker on Amazon for good reason. It is water resistant, shockproof, dustproof and can go just about anywhere you can. It has both a super strong suction cup for the shower and a metal “D” clip for hanging from your belt or backpack on a hike. The built-in battery is rechargeable and lasts six hours at 70% volume. An automatic shut-off function protects your battery's charge against your own negligence. The Bluetooth is responsive up to a lengthy 30 feet, so your devices can remain a safe distance. With a hands-free function, you don’t have to fear missing phone calls. You can even change the music without touching a thing. The sound quality is awesome. Bass and treble are both clear, and the 5W power output offers lots of volume. The VicTsing comes in five fun colors: army green, grey, red, yellow, and light blue. You’re sure to find one that fits your personal style.

The only downside of this speaker is that it is not actually waterproof; it is water resistant. This means it cannot be completely submerged in water. While you could spray it with a shower hose, it probably won’t recover if dropped in water. Make sure that suction cup is secure!

  • Easy mounting with hook
  • 5 color options
  • Only water-resistant
  • Smaller 6 hour battery life

4. AYL Soundfit - Best Bluetooth Shower Speaker for Battery Life 2017

AYL offers the longest battery life of any of the speakers on this list. It plays up to 12 hours on a three-hour charge. With a seamless design, it is completely dustproof. It is water resistant to survive rain and other splashes. The shell has an extra-thick protective layer, ensuring it is shockproof. Its sticky rubber casing ensures it stays put without sliding.This speaker features Bluetooth 4.0. Bluetooth 4.0 is more energy-efficient than the Bluetooth 3.0 used by the other speakers. It also pairs much quicker with your devices. It has the same 30-foot range for Bluetooth reception as standard Bluetooth 3.0. This speaker offers a powerful 5W of power, for lots of volume. It does not have a suction cup, but it does have a sturdy retractable plastic loop for hanging. It also comes in three different colors, so you can choose one to match your bathroom décor.

The AYL is a little heavier than some of the other speakers on this list, at about 10 ounces. When it’s still weighing in at well under a pound, it is still portable. It is a compact square shape, about 3.5 inches across. AYL offers a lifetime warranty, so you can be sure this speaker is for life.This speaker does not have a built-in microphone, so no hands-free phone calls. It also is not compatible with audio books. It skips. It still plays music well and is sturdy.

  • Long 12 hour battery life
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Heaviest on the list
  • Not entirely waterproof

Waterproof Bluetooth Shower Speaker Buying Guide

When buying a sound system for your shower, there are a few things you need to take into account. One is water resistance. Any speaker that they claim is safe for the shower will at least be water resistant. This means it will be able to get splashed or sit in the rain and there will be no damage to any of the inner components. However, most shower speakers will not hold up if dropped in water. If you have kids or pets, they could knock your speaker over into the pool, sink, or bathtub. This can instantly destroy your electronics.

Another important factor is battery life. If you’ll be using your speaker only in the shower, then you won’t need much battery life. But if you plan on taking it hiking, you may want to get one with a long battery life so it can play all day.Speaker output is important. Three watts is enough for the shower, a hike, or an intimate get together. If in a noisy truck, you will want to choose a speaker with the more powerful five-watt output (or more).

If you'll be taking your speaker on outdoor excursions, it needs to be sturdy. If there’s a chance your speaker will be knocking into things, it needs to be shockproof. If it will be around sand or dirt, it should be dust proof. If you don’t have those features, a hike or a visit to the beach could kill your electronics.

There’s also the built-in microphone to consider. I don’t like hands-free calling, so this doesn’t matter to me. However, if you want to answer calls while cooking or lounging in the pool, you can with a built in microphone. Then you won’t have to worry about getting your phone wet answering your call.Most shower speakers will be lightweight and portable, but size can be a consideration. Also, as mentioned earlier, how the speaker stays in position is important. Suction cups, hanging loops, and stand-alone speakers all function better in different environments. For the most versatility, choose one with a loop and a suction cup.

Most importantly, make sure that you are buying from a reputable brand. If you decide to get one that’s not on this list, a quick Google search will tell you if the company is legitimate. Chances are, if the brand has a nice website, then they also take some pride in their craftsmanship. If you can find no information about the brand, you’ll have no one to complain to if your product doesn't work.

Final Thoughts

Waterproof Bluetooth speakers are super affordable and lots of fun. With so many out there, be sure to get one from a reputable brand. Be sure to check out battery life before buying. Also, watch out for the anchoring mechanism. Suction cups and hanging loops affect the places you can put your speaker while it plays. Power output determines the volume potential. The higher the power outage, the louder your speaker will be. Some can venture underwater, while others cannot. Some can take a beating with shockproof or dustproof covers. Whatever you choose, be careful to not use all the hot water singing along in the shower.
